About The Great American Burger Book:
“What a way to travel through America! George Motz takes us one burger at a time. I’ll be locked on the Green Chile Cheeseburger page for my lesson from New Mexico.”—Bobby Flay
The Great American Burger Book is the first book to showcase a wide range of regional hamburger styles and cooking methods by the preeminent hamburger expert George Motz. With his documentary Hamburger America, Motz garnered numerous awards and nominations, leading to the Travel Channel series Burger Land. Now, Motz explores regional burgers that use smoking, flame-grilling, steaming, griddle-smashing, poaching, and deep-frying techniques in The Great American Burger Book.
Each chapter of The Great American Burger Book is dedicated to a specific regional burger, from the tortilla burger of New Mexico to the classic New York–style pub burger, and from the fried-onion burger of Oklahoma to Hawaii’s Loco Moco. With 25 states represented, Motz provides expert instruction throughout—with tantalizing recipes and vibrant color photography that will inspire not only a road trip, but also a run to the market to create a new spin on a classic dish that can be prepared in your own home.
